Museum of the Moon
Date(s) - 05/10/2018 - 14/10/2018
Vivacity presents Museum of the Moon, a visually stunning installation by artist Luke Jurram. The moon, measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, will be suspended in the magnificent space of Peterborough Cathedral.
At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programmes their own series of lunar inspired events beneath the moon.
